Digitally Remastered using the Bertha Digital Audio Workstation by firstname.lastname@example.org. Completed April 14, 2006.
This was a terrible transfer with more than 100 digi-snits throughout the show. More than 16 hours was spent fixing most of them. There are a few small ones that remain. A couple of methods were used in fixing the digi-snits, including manually editing individual samples.
Bobby says "See you later, bye bye" at the end of One More Saturday Night. Frequency and spectral analysis shows the signature to be the same as the rest of the show. Though it may appear out of order, it is believed this is due to the show being partially broadcast on French TV and this may have been the end of the TV part of the show.
Between song tuning and banter was removed by someone and is not part of the original release. There appears to be tape machine noise between each song on the original. These small bips of noise were removed.
This is A fantastic show with absolutely wonderful sound.

Subject: Birthday show!!
Dark Star>Sug Mag>Caution!!!! Cmon man that's fire!!
Subject: Theme Park Deuce
Second date at an amusement park, the day after squeezing in a cafeteria appearance at a nearby college. While not as great overall as the 1st show here, two days prior, that's just 'cause that one's an all-time great. It's still one of the top ten shows from E72, and that's tough competition. This show was aired on Danish television.
First Set. Standard fare until a perfect example of the '72 China>Rider. This is right before Jer started singing on Jack Straw. The first He's Gone is way uptempo (why this night and not in London?) and the bridge hadn't been finished yet. It worked so well that they added it to 10 of the remaining 16 nights - even without the yet-unwritten middle eight. Next Time You See Me is a perfect version. As the band jokes around with levels Keith adds a quick Merry-Go-Round Broke Down. Black-Throated Wind is a clunky, underwritten song, but Jer and Keith both find something to add to a tight version.
Second Set. This is a definitive version of Casey Jones with crazy interplay from everybody. Mr. Charlie was only skipped on tour at the following Beat Club taping, and many are good, but not all are this good. Playin' has a good tempo and goes off the deep end F A S T; even at 10 minutes it's concise and powerful. Sugaree is tight, but '72 is not the year for this one. It's a raucous, perfect One More Saturday Night - an almost-nightly usual set closer. Bobby actually sings the end, rather than the concomitant shred voice™. The previous Tivoli has the better Hurts Me Too - on this tour mere above average becomes mediocre! Ramble On Rose is uptempo, with bent double-stops-galore from Bobby and ragtime from Keith! (It too has a Merry-Go-Round). Big Railroad may be known for the masks they donned but it's also a best-ever. Jer plays a unique rhythm figure. The count-in is clipped on the box set version of Truckin', which seems a standard run-through but erupts into a screamer jam. It's as good or better than 4/11 and better even than 5/26. One of the top sets of all time!
Third Set. On a tour with several 40min Dark Stars, a 31-minute one isn't unusual. It's better than most of the longer ones, though not one of the top '72s. This is, however, the longest Caution by far - which doesn't mean more happens - in fact they sound tired in this set. This was the only Johnny B. Goode of E72.
1st Set: A
2nd Set: A+
3rd Set: C+
Overall = 4 Stars
China Cat/Rider - one of the best of '72
He's Gone - only time they nailed a premier and the best pre-bridge version
Next Time You See Me - perfect Pig
Casey Jones - definitive
Mr. Charlie - even played every night this stands out
Playing in the Band - fast, nailed
One More Saturday Night - mid-set rave up
Ramble On Rose - punchy and check Bobby
El Paso - very on
Big Railroad Blues - classic
Truckin' - one of the best few from the 17 on tour
SOURCES: Aside from the superb Bertha SBD (field_34032), there's the full official release. Big Railroad is also on the vinyl version of Europe '72 v2. The show was produced for Kongeriget Danmark television (the next show was also shot, for Deutsch TV). Euro TV aired the show repeatedly over the years in Benelux, France, Germany (BRD), & Denmark, though the live show used different songs than the repeat version. The show is usually up on YouTube. Hurts Me Too is on the DVD that came with Scrapbook.
Subject: Married me a wife
it is also nice to have a more streamlined copy.
The band's sound seems to be
richer and fuller with each show.
Pretty ironic that a 9 song 1st set
seems condensed after previous shows
for this tour.
This is a solid recording.
I am at the China>Rider
and everything to this point has been
wide open from the get go
and of course this pairing
gives the band its first opportunity
to hit its full stride.
The Rain & Snow opener had a real nice flow.
It was always heartwarming live.
it seemed to get played
when I least expected it
probably because it wasn't
in a very regular rotation.
Me & Bobby-again this tune is straightforward
and so perfect for the band.
China town Shuffle- PIG is just on top of his tunes.And for me it is these stand alone songs that are the highlight of Pig's last full tour.
The Rider almost sounded like the LP version
Jack Straw-Sweet and UPbeat!
"You keep us on the run"
The very first STEAL YOUR FACE.
Fast tempo with a nice jump to it
The jam gets a little exploration
Mainly Garcia but Phil lays down counterpoint.
Could use some DJG.
No call & response yet
which keeps the maiden voyage
under 7 minutes.
Lied, Cheated, wrong Doing
and Pig on the harp.
what was that old number
IF LOViN YOU IS WRONG
I DON'T WANT TO BE RIGHT.
Monitors & Messing with the HEAD.
and the Merry go round and round
"I use to lay awake at night
thinking, am i going down , down"
BTWind-How many times did this function
as a set closer?
A plodding version. ie DOWNbeat.
Almost gets off the ground?
"Going back home,
That's what I am going to do"
Jerry announces a break
but i can't help but wonder
if they still went out with Casey Jones
Playin'-The return of Donna Jean
"just a little nervous from the fall"
She comes in strong for
The 'Standing on a Tower' verse
The jams on these 10 minute Europe 72
PITB are absolutely stunning.
Donna all in on the Reprise
Jerry just all over that tune.
Sugaree is so mellow
it tends to get past me
all of a sudden
I find myself at Saturday Night
which for sure
they wanted to put up
for the broadcast.
Weir kills his voice
on European T.V.
So Weir says goodbye
which i assume is to the TV.
A very bluesy
Hurts Me Too
Dang this is a thick tune
It is this contrast
that gives the upbeat material
such soaring HIGH's.
"Little Girl, Oh I love you"
I can't recapture the over the top review
I did in 2016 of this show
but suffice it to say that this is a peach.
They finally nail the transition from:
Dark Star >Sugar Magnolia
"Takin' it easy!"
Subject: A Beautiful Dark Star
I agree with one of the previous reviewers, the final jam does sound a little bit sleepy but that just makes the grogginess of Caution sound kinda swampy and spooky.
Subject: Amazing recordings from the day I was born!
Come to think of it "He's Gone" would be absolutely perfect, an homage to my mother's womb!
I've listened and watched the Copenhagen recordings many times. 5-Stars!
Subject: Wow, this recording is top-notch!
Many thanks for your efforts!
Subject: If I had a Time Machine...
Subject: Echoes of Europe ’72…but really live
Subject: A Scandinavian fairy tail
While this 30+ minute Dark Star is not quite as brilliant as some of the monumental efforts that follow, it is still a stunning effort, largely due to some great work by Keith. The pre-verse intro is simply beautiful. Right from the opening notes there is some beautiful interplay between Jerry and Keith, though it eventually breaks down. After several attempts, Jerry re-establishes the theme and pulls it back together. Immediately after the verse there is a lilting duet between Jerry and Billy, though this too is unsustained. Following some rumbling from Phil, this one briefly gets quiet, and then the magic starts. At about 24:00, Weir steers the band into a gorgeous and jazzy jam similar to WRS. Its amazingly sublime, the entire ensemble locking in on the theme for several minutes before a thrilling segue into Sugar Magnolia.
An extraordinary performance of Caution follows, the beginning of which is particularly jazzy! This is a gem of a show! (97 pts)
Subject: Thanks Jay!
The music contained within is pretty phenomenal. Jerrys guitar sounds great! A very unique "He's Gone", one of my favorites.
The transition from Dark Star into Sugar Mag is absolutely beautiful.
Good show in a foreign land. Enjoy the Dead!
Subject: Have Heard Others
Perhaps this is one of their most evocative Dark Stars -- certainly one of their finest and easily one of my favorites.
